6 . The University of Minnesota 

In the College of Science, Literature, and the Arts, there is a 
four-year course of study leading to the degree, Bachelor of Arts. The 
work of the first year is elective within certain limitations as to the range 
of subjects from which the electivcs may be chosen. The remaining work 
of the course is entirely elective, with the provision that a certain number 
of long courses be selected. The course is so elastic that it permits the 
student to make the general scope of his course elastic, scientific or liter- 
ary, to suit his individual purpose. 

The College of Engineering and the Mechanic Arts was founded 
in accordance with the Laws of the State of Minnesota and of the Federal 
Government, its object being "to promote the liberal and practical educa- 
tion of the industrial classes in the several pursuits and professions in 
life." It offers courses of study, of five years each, in civil, mechanical, 
electrical and municipal engineering, leading to the degrees of civil, mechan- 
ical or electrical engineer, the degree of Bachelor of Science being con- 
ferred at the end of the fourth year. This college also offers work in 
the Graduate School leading to the degree of Master of Science. 

The College of Agriculture offers a four-year course in agricul- 
ture. The degree of Bachelor of Science, in Agriculture, is conferred upon 
completion of the course. Students in this College may specialize along 
the line of forestry or of home economics and secure the degree. Bachelor 
of Science (in Forestry, or in Home Economics). 

The School of Agriculture offers a three-year course of study and 
is a training school for practical farm life and in domestic economy. The 
College of Agriculture is open to graduates of this School who have com- 
pleted the fourth year of work required for admission to the College. 

The Dairy School offers practical instruction in dairying, specially 
designed for those who are actually engaged in the manufacture of butter 
and cheese. 

The Short Course for Farmers is designed to be of the greatest 
help possible to those actually engaged in farming. 

The Crookston School of Agriculture offers a course of study 
quite similar to that given in the School of Agriculture. 

It is the object of the College of Law of the University of Minne- 
sota to educate its students by means of the stud}- of jurisprudence, and 
at the same time so familiarize them with the fundamental principles 
of positive law that they will be able, at the end of their course, to safely 
enter upon the duties of the legal profession. Education, and not simply 
information, is the prime object. The power to think clearly, to reason 
cogently, to perceive distinctions quickly, to investigate thoroughly, to 
generalize carefully and to express his thoughts accurately are the basal 



General Information. 7 

Qualifications of the safe counsellor. To secure for the student these 
habits of thought and expression should be the aim of both the student 

himself and his instructor. 

The art of practice is taught so far as that is possible in a law school. 
A system of courts embracing the court of a justice of the peace and the 
district and supreme courts of the state is organized and maintained. 
Students begin their practice work in the lowest court, and continue it. 
under the guidance of an able practitioner, throughout the system. The 
rules of practice adopted by the District and Supreme Courts of Minne- 
sota are printed and a copy is placed in the hands of each student; the 
codes of practice in the state are studied with special care, and instruction, 
covering the work of brief-making, is given the students by a successful 
member of the bar in daily practice. Jury trials are conducted throughout 
the senior year, and the usual appeals, motions for new trial, and re- 
argument and all the other points of practice in the courts of the state 
are considered as each student proceeds from the justice court up through 
the district and supreme courts of the system. 

The degree Bachelor of Laws is granted upon the completion of the 
three-year day course, or the four-year evening course, entitling the 
graduate to admission to the bar without examination. 

Two graduate courses are offered, the first leading to the degree 
Master of Laws, the second to the degree Doctor of Civil Law. 

The College of Medicine and Surgery, and The College of Homeo- 
pathic Medicine and Surgery offer four-year courses of study, of nine 
months each, requiring two years of collegiate work for admission. Upon 
completion of either of the prescribed courses the degree, Doctor of 
Medicine, is conferred. 

In the Colleges of Science, Literature, and the Arts, of Medicine and 
Surgery, and of Homeopathic Medicine and Surgery, there has been 
established a combined course of six years, leading to the degrees, Bach- 
elor of Science, and Doctor of Medicine. 

The College of Dentistry offers a three-year course of study, of nine 
months each. Upon completion of the prescribed course the degree of 
Doctor of Dental Surgery is conferred. 

The College of Pharmacy was organized in 1891 upon request of 
the Minnesota State Pharmaceutical Association. In the organization and 
conduct of the college, the Board of Regents and the faculty have had 
the co-operation of the pharmacists of the Northwest. The college is of 
the University grade and maintains a high standard of entrance and 
graduation requirements. Every effort is made to comply with the de- 
mands of the pharmaceutical profession in the Northwest. The college 



8 The University of Minnesota 

offers a regular course extending over two or three years leading to the 
degree, Bachelor of Pharmacy, and two post-graduate courses, the first 
requiring at least one additional year of resident work and leading to 
the degree, Master of Pharmacy, and the second requiring one or two 
additional years of work and leading to the degree, Doctor of Pharmacy. 
It is now contemplated to add a four-year course to include somewhat 
more than is now included in the regular two-year course and about two 
years of academic work. This course will lead to the degree Bachelor 
of Science in Pharmacy, and will in all respects be at least the equal of 
similar courses given in other University colleges of Pharmacy. The 
course will be inaugurated in 1909 or 1910. The Board of Regents have 
also authorized the introduction of a course somewhat lower than the 
regular course now given, to comply however with the requirements of 
the American Conference of Pharmaceutical Faculties. This course prob- 
ably will not begin until 1909 and will probably not lead to any degree or 
to the degree Pharmaceutical Graduate. 

The School of Mines was established in 1889. Its buildings and 
laboratories are located on the grounds of the University of Minnesota. 
Students of the School of Mines have, therefore, all the opportunities 
afforded by a large university. Two regular courses of study are offered, 
namely, mining engineering and metallurgy, leading to the degrees of En- 
gineer of Mines (E. M.) and Metallurgical Engineer (Met. E.), res- 
pectively. The courses in the school are designed with a view of preparing 
men to enter their profession with a thorough grounding in mathematics, 
in the sciences, and in the fundamental principles of mining engineering 
and metallurgy. The technical courses consist of lecture work in mining, 
metallurgy and allied subjects supplemented by laboratory work in assay- 
ing, chemistry, ore dressing and metallurgy; field work in plan and under- 
ground surveying; actual practical mining and metallurgical work in Min- 
nesota and western mining centers. A system of apprenticeship during 
summer vacations has been inaugurated. This work has become part of 
the curriculum and is required of all students who are candidates for 
degrees. 

Minnesota's enormous iron ore production continually brings before 
the public the necessity for trained men to aid in the development of the 
country's mineral resources. The state has developed its School of 
Mines with this end in view. 

The College of Education offers a practical and a theoretical train- 
ing for prospective high school teachers and principals, for principals of 
elementary schools, for supervisors of special studies, and for superin- 
tendents of school systems. 



General Information. . ( ) 

Students arc admitted to the college only after the completion of at 
least two full years of college work, during which time they should have 
pursued at least one course in general psychology, and prospective high 
school teachers should have given especial attention to one or more of the 
subjects which they expect to teach. The two years' course of study, be- 
ginning with the junior year, leads to the degree of Bachelor of Arts in 
Education. Preparation for teaching is planned to include a thorough 
grounding in the correct use of English, an adequate training in general 
and in educational psychology, in the history and organization of schools, 
in educational theory, and in the practice of teaching; and also, quite aside 
from the liberal training of the regular college course, specific preparation 
in both the subject matter and the methods of those subjects in the sec- 
ondary curriculum which each candidate proposes to teach. A third year 
leads to the degree of master of arts, including advanced studies in 
education and philosophy, and in one or more of the subjects of the sec- 
ondary curriculum, at the option of the candidate. 

In addition to the ordinary academic and professional studies con- 
nected with the training of the teacher, the college offers an opportunity 
for observation and practice teaching under supervision, as well as 
special facilities in voice culture, public school music, and physical culture, 
together with elementary and advanced courses in drawing, domestic art 
and domestic science, manual training and business education — those 
specialized forms of the secondary curriculum which are being introduced 
so rapidly into the public high schools of Minnesota. 

The School of Analytical and Applied Chemistry, leading to the 
degrees, Bachelor of Science in Chemistry, and Bachelor of Science in 
Chemical Engineering, offers two courses of study of four years each in 
analytical and applied chemistry. 

The Graduate School gathers into a single organization and unites 
for the purposes of administration all the activities of the University in 
all its schools and colleges in so far as they relate to advanced instruction 
offered for the second or higher degrees, viz. : Master of Arts and Doctor 
of Philosophy conferred for advanced, non-technical study; Master of 
Science and Doctor of Science for technical study ; Master of Laws and 
Doctor of Civil Law for advanced legal studies. The privileges of this 
school are in general open to all Bachelors of Arts, of Science, pure and 
applied, and of Laws, from reputable colleges and universities having 
courses substantially equivalent to those at this University. 

The University Summer School is organized for a six weeks' 
session in June and July under the direction of the State Department of 
Public Instruction. In the elementary section courses are given for teach- 



10 The University of Minnesota 

ers in all the common school branches and in preparation for the state 
teacher's certificates. In the college section courses are given for high 
school teachers and in preparation for the state professional certificate. 
Students who desire University entrance credits and credits toward the 
Bachelor's degree may secure these by pursuing not more than two full 
courses at each session. 

Special Courses. In each ' of the Colleges, students of mature age 
and adequate preparation are permitted to pursue, under the direction of 
the faculty, one or two distinct lines of study. 

Extension Lectures. Professors in the University are prepared to 
give a limited number of extension lectures from time to time. For sub- 
jects, speakers, terms and dates, application should be made to the Chair- 
man of the Committee on University Extension.

Historical Sketch 



When Minnesota was organized as a territory March 3, 1849, it was 
understood that a grant of public lands would be made by Congress for 
the endowment and support of a university as in the ease of all other 
states carved out of this old northwest territory. 

On December 10, 1850, delegate Sibley gave notice of a bill to grant 
two townships (46,080 acres) which became law on February 19, 1851. 
Meantime the Minnesota legislature had by Act, Feb. 13., created the Uni- 
versity of Minnesota and made over to that corporation the proceeds of 
all lands which Congress might grant. 

The location of the institution was fixed by this law "at or near the 
Falls of St. Anthony," by virtue of an understanding relating to the dis- 
tribution of public buildings. A board of twelve regents elected in 
classes by the legislature had charge till 1860. In the fall of 1851, a 
preparatory school was opened. In 1856, intoxicated by the boom which 
was then raging, the regents began the erection of the rear part of the 
"old main" building. Before it was finished the panic of 1857 came on. 
The board could not pay the contractors nor meet the interest on the 
bonds they had been authorized to sell. 

In the winter of 1860 the legislature replaced the old board of twelve 
regents by one of five appointed by the Governor. At the end of four 
years this board had not been able to put the finances of the uni- 
versity on a sound footing. Senator John S. Pillsbury laid before the 
legislature of 1864 a plan to pay off the accumulated debt by the sale of 
less than one-third of the land grant. A special board of three regents, 
headed by Mr. Pillsbury, was created to make the experiment. At the 
close of 1856 this board reported the debt substantially liquidated. A 
debt of gratitude is due to the creditors and bondholders for scaling down 
their just claims and accepting sums far below their dues. By means of a 
small appropriation the special board renovated the building, purchased 
furniture and appliances, and in November, 1867, opened the preparatory 
department, to which girls as well as boys were admitted. 

This board having accomplished its purpose prepared for the legisla- 
ture the bill which enacted into law February 13, 1858, became the actual 
charter of the university. By far the most important element was that 
which united with the university endowment proper the expected income 

27 



28 The University of Minnesota 

from the congressional land grant of 1862 for the support of colleges of 
Agricultural and Mechanic Arts. 

At the close of the college year of 1869 a small company of prepara- 
tory students were found ready for college instruction. A faculty of nine 
professors and instructors was elected and began their work in September. 
In this year William Watts Folwell was appointed president. 

In 1873 two students were graduated at the first commencement. 
Some twenty years now passed in quiet work and growth, mostly in 
the academic department. A good beginning was made in that of en- 
gineering and mechanic arts, but in spite of most earnest endeavors by 
the regents the college of agriculture developed slowly. There was little 
demand for proper agricultural instruction and the pedagogy of that branch 
had not been developed. 

In the year 1870 Congress confirmed to the state a second grant of 
public land for a state university ingeniously embodied in the enabling 
act of Feb. 26, 1857, which the departmental authorities at Washington 
had persistently refused to recognize. 

In September, 1884, Cyrus Northrop succeeded to the presidency 
and not long after began that great development familiar to all. 

The Colleges of Law and Medicine were organized on a self-paying 
basis. New buildings sprang up, nobly equipped, and the faculties were 
reinforced as means accumulated. The growth of the College of Agri- 
culture has been remarkable. The congressional appropriations for experi- 
ment stations and additional endowment have greatly increased its effi- 
ciency and prosperity. The College of Engineering has also enjoyed a 
rapid and cumulative development. The Colleges of Pharmacy, Dentistry, 
the Schools of Mines, Chemistry, Education and the Graduate School have 
been added in recent years, the result of public demands for special tech- 
nical training and research. 



Equipment 

GROUNDS AND BUILDINGS 

The twenty -three buildings of the University used by all depart men's 
of instruction save that of agriculture, are located upon the University 
campus, a tract of about fifty-five acres lying between University avenue 
and the river and between Eleventh and Nineteenth avenues southeast. 
The campus is well wooded with a fine grove of native oaks and commands 
a beautiful view of St. Anthony Falls and the city, but is sufficiently re- 
moved from the business center to insure desirable quiet and retirement. 
At the last session of the legislature provision was made for the ex- 
penditure of four hundred fifty thousand dollars in campus enlargement 
during the course of the years 1907-1909. Private benefactors have added 
fifty thousand dollars to that amount. Condemnation proceedings are now 
in progress for the purpose of obtaining the land desired. About thirty 
additional acres situated to the south of the present campus will probably 
be secured. The Department of Agriculture, including the college and 
school of agriculture, has a separate campus at St. Anthony Park, where 
are located the twenty-five buildings provided for this department and 
the state experiment station. Adjoining this campus is the University 
farm of about four hundred twenty acres. 

ASTRONOMICAL OBSERVATORY 

The students' astronomical observatory contains a ten and one-half 
inch refracting telescope furnished with a third lens for converting it 
into a photographic telescope ; a filar micrometer ; a spectroscope by 
Brashear; a students' meridian circle and zenith telescope; a Repsold 
photographic measuring machine, a chronograph, and astronomical clocks. 

GYMNASIUM 

The gymnasium is located in the Armory, and is well equipped 
with a variety of gymnastic appliances. The object of the gymnasium is 
to provide all of the students of the University opportunity for exer- 
cise to build up .their general health. It also provides special training 
to correct physical defects and functional derangements. The gymnasium 
is in charge of a professional medical director and assistant, and the 

29 



30 The University of Minnesota 

training is under their direct supervision. A thorough physical examina- 
tion is offered each student immediately before and after the gymnasium 
course, and a record is made of the same. The examination of these rec- 
ords shows a marked improvement in the standard of health of the aver- 
age student during his college course. The gymnasium is open at all 
times to all young men in the University who arc free to use the ap- 
paratus and to pursue a course of physical training under the direct super- 
vision of the director and his assistant. In some of the colleges of the 
University, this work is required of .'ill men. 

MILITARY DRILL 

The Act of Congress of 1862, providing for the establishment of "Land 
Grant Colleges," rccjuircs that instruction he given in military science and 
tactics at all institutions that are its beneficiaries. The armory is located 
en the University campus and has all the facilities usually provided in a 
modern armory. The United States government supplies the University 
with the necessary arms, equipment and ammunition for instruction in 
infantry and artillery drill, and details a commissioned officer of the 
regular army to take charge of the department. 

THE ONE-MILE LIQUOR LAW 

A state law provides that "it shall he unlawful for any person to 
sell or dispose of any spirituous. Ninons, or malt liquors within the dis- 
tance of one mile of the Main Building of the University of Minnesota, as 
now located in the city of Minneapolis; provided that the provisions of 
this section shall not apply to that part of the city of Minneapolis lying on 
the west side of the Mississippi River." 

ATHLETIC ORGANIZATIONS 

The Athletic Associatiox is an organization having for its ohject the 
general physical well-being of the students and the encouragement of a 
proper spirit in favor of hearty, manly sports. 

Board of Control for .Athletics. The athletic .sports of the University 
arc under the supervision of a board of control made up of eleven mem- 
bers ; two are members of the faculty, two are alumni, and seven are stu- 
dents. This board arranges the schedule of games, manages the finances, 
and exercises a general supervision over all matters connected with ath- 
letic contests. It has charge of the whole of the athletic grounds of the 
University, Northrop Field. This field, containing about six acres, lies 
immediately adjoining the armory. It contains a modern cinder track. 
baseball diamond, and football gridiron. The grand stands have a seating 
capacity of about fifteen thousand. A large portion of this field was a 



General Information. 31 

gift to the University from the heirs of the late John S. Pillsbury, and the 
brick wall surrounding it is the gift of his son, Mr. A. 1*'. Pillsbury. It is 
generally conceded to be one of the finest fields in the West. 

MUSEUMS AND COLLECTION'S 
The museums of the University contain material obtained from 
various sources, arranged with special reference to its use for illustra- 
tion. Among the more notable collections arc the following: 

(a) In Geology and Mineralogy. The Kunz collection of miner- 
als, purchased of George F. Kunz; several suits of crystalline rocks 
secured from various sources ; the Ward collection of casts contrib- 
uted in part by citizens of Minneapolis ; collection of rocks, fos- 
sils, minerals and economic products of Minnesota ; upwards of 9,000 
entries gathered by the geological survey of the State; the Sardeson 
collection of paleozoic fossils of Minnesota, Wisconsin, Towa, and 
neighboring states, comprising 30,000 specimens ; a series of 3,000 thin 
sections of typical rocks and minerals largely representing Minnesota 
localities ; purchased material comprising a fine collection of crystals ; 
5,000 minerals and 3,000 specimens of economic minerals and crystal- 
line rocks, and a collection of over 4,000 photographs anel lantern slides. 

Mr. Arus S. Williams, of Minneapolis, has given to the University 
his extensive collection of negatives and photographs. During many 
years of active work as a photographer, he has collected a series of 
several thousand plates representing geologic and geographic subjects. 
commercial views and historic scenes. These will prove of great value 
in illustrating the physical, commercial and political history of the State. 
They are to be recognizeel as the A. S. Williams collection of Photographs 
and Photographic Negatives. 

(b) In Zoology. All the material collected by the State Zoologist; 
a collection of mounted Minnesota birds representing about one-third 
of the species found in the state.; a number of the mammals of the 
state and a few from the more western states ; a collection of fishes, 
molluscan shells, corals and other foreign material. 

The ornithological room contains the excellent Thomas S. Roberts 
and Franklin Benner collection of skins, nests and eggs of Minnesota 
birds. Other groups of animals are more or less numerously represented, 
and are receiving annual additions from the Zoological Survey. 

(c) In Botany. The general herbarium numbering about 400,000 
specimens and comprising the series of plants collected by the state 
botanist ; an alcoholic collection of material for dissection ; a collection of 
woods of Minnesota ; a limited series of carboniferous and cretaceous 
fossil plants, including the Lesquereaux collection from the Minnesota 
River localities. 



32 The University of Minnesota

LIBRARIES. 

The University Library consists of: 

1. The general library. 

2. The college libraries, including those of law, medicine, engineering, 

agriculture, and mines. 

3. The departmental libraries, including those of arts, astronomy, 

animal biology, botany, chemistry, French, gefMogy, German, 
Greek, Latin, mathematics, military science, physics, rhetoric, 
Scandinavian. 

The whole number of bound volumes owned by the University is 
about one hundred and twenty thousand, unbound books and pamphlets

cals are received. 

The general library is open to students and the public from eight 
A. M. to ten P. M. except Sundays and legal holidays. 

The departmental libraries are designed especially for the work of 
their respective departments and consist mainly of books of reference 
and current periodicals relating to technical subjects. The private col- 
lections of the professors are usually available upon application when nec- 
essary for research. 

Besides the University library the following libraries are easily ac- 
cessible : the Minneapolis public library, containing over one hundred and 
sixty thousand bound volumes and over fourteen hundred of the leading 
newspapers, magazines and periodicals of the world; the St. Paul public 
library with about ninety-five thousand volumes ; the Minnesota Historical 
Society library of about eighty-five thousand volumes and the state 
library of about fifty-nine thousand volumes in the capitol in St. Paul ; 
the Minnesota Academy of Natural Sciences library of twelve thousand 
titles. 

ASSISTANTS, SCHOLARSHIPS, LOANS AND PRIZES 

ASSISTANTS 

It is the policy of the University to encourage graduate study and 
to provide for assistance in laboratories, reading of test and examination 
papers, supervision of note books, and similar services by the appoint- 
ment of assistants in departments where such services are required. The 
general principles which now control the making of such appointments 
are: (1) the appointments are made by the board of regents, upon the 
nomination of the head of the department concerned and its ratification 



34 The University of Minnesota 

by the dean of the college; (2) appointments are for one year only, but 
may be renewed; (3) the appointees must be graduate students, who are 
taking work along the lines of the assistantships to which they are ap- 
pointed; (4) assistants are not regularly placed in charge of classes, and 
when exceptions are made to meet emergencies, the arrangement is re- 
garded as a temporary one, and in no case to extend beyond the current 
year. 

SCHOLARSH IPS 

The Moses Marston Scholarship in English 

Friends and pupils of the late Professor Moses Marston have given 
one thousand dollars as a memorial fund. The annual income of the 
fund is to be used to help some student in the English course. The 
award of the income is made on the basis of pecuniary need and of 
deserving scholarship. 

The Albert Howard Scholarship Fund

may make up their entrance conditions at a nominal charge for instruc- 
tion. The general secretary will be pleased to correspond with any young 
man intending to come- to the University. Any inquiry about board, room, 
employment, or general information will gladly be answered, and a 
hand-book will be sent to anyone wishing it. Address the general secre-

The eredits to be allowed in such cases will be determined by the En- 
rollment Committee of the college in question. 

2. FROM MINNESOTA NORMAL SCHOOLS 

Graduates of the "advanced graduate course" of a Minnesota State 
Normal School are admitted to the College of Science, Literature, and 
the Arts (see p. 40, bulletin of College of Science, Literature, and the 
Arts) with advanced standing equivalent to one year's credit. 

Individual graduates of the "advanced Latin course" (five year) or 
of the "advanced English course" (five year) of a Minnesota State 
Normal School, who on the basis of maturity and ability, present cer- 
tificates of special fitness from the president of the Normal School, will 
be admitted with advanced standing under the same regulation and 
proviso. 

DESCRIPTION OF SUBJECTS ACCEPTED FOR ADMISSION 

The following statements indicate in a general way the preparation 
which the University expects in the various subjects accepted for admis- 
sion. 

English (four years) 

In order to secure a definite plan of study and unity of method on the 
part of preparatory schools, the entrance requirement in English is outlined 
below somewhat in detail. To satisfy this requirement a four-year course 
of not less than four hours per week must be pursued. The headings under 
which instruction will naturally fall are : 

(a) English classics 

(b) % The principles of rhetoric 

(c) Practice in written expression 

(a) English classics should include a critical reading, in class, of 
English masterpieces. The following are suggested as well adapted 
for such study: Shakespeare's Macbeth; Milton's Paradise Lost, 
books one and two; Burke's Conciliation with America: Carlyle's 
essay on Burvs. In the study of these works the student should 
know the leading facts connected with the author and his time; he 
should become familiar with the subject matter of the work and 
thoroughly at home with the story, and should have a clear idea of 
the form and structure of the work as a whole. 

A less critical knowledge of other standard or classic works, which 
may perhaps be read by the student at home, with written reports 
and brief oral discussions in class, is desirable. The following works 
are noted as indicative of the minimum amount of work expected : 
at least two of Shakespeare's plays, beside the one read in class, 
one of Irving's works, one of Hawthorne's novels, one of Steven- 
son's novels, one of Webster's orations. 

(b) . The work in the principles of composition should include the 
principles and technical terms of ordinary texts upon the subject, 
whether acquired by the direct study of such texts or mainly by the 
study of selected English masterpieces. It should not be forgotten 
that this is not an end in itself, but simply a means of teaching the 
student the correct use of English. 

(c) Not less than one hour each week throughout the four years of 
the high school course should be devoted to practice in written ex- 
pression. The instructor may choose such topics as local conditions 
may require or make most profitable; but whatever line of work is 



50 The University of Minnesota 

pursued, the student should be taught to use language correctly and 
forcibly and learn to express himself clearly and logically in writing. 

Elementary Algebra (one year). Addition, subtraction, multiplication, divi- 
sion, factoring, highest common divisor, lowest common multiple, 
fractions, simple equations, with one, two, and several unknown 
quantities followed by problems, theory of exponents, involution (in- 
cluding the binomial theorem for positive integral exponents), evo- 
lution, radicals, inequalities, ratio, proportion, progression, and 
quadratic equations, with problems. 

Higher Algebra, First Part (one-half year). While this subject does not 
include any topics not named under elementary algebra, a much 
fuller treatment of those topics is expected in this work. Principles 
as well as processes should be learned, theorems and rules should be 

rigorously demonstrated, the exercises and problems should be more 
difficult, and students should be drilled in short methods and rapid 
work. Unless candidates have a good knowledge of the fundamental 
topics named below, they are not prepared to pursue successfully at 
the University the second part of higher algebra. 
The topics are addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, factoring, 
highest common divisor, lowest common multiple, fractions, theory of 
exponents, involution, evolution, surds, imaginaries and simple equa- 
tions with problems. 
Plane Geometry (one year). Any of the standard texts on this subject will 
furnish the necessary preparation. Isoperimotry, symmetry and 
maxima and minima of figures are not required. The exercises re- 
quiring solutions and demonstrations should not be omitted. 

Solid Geometry (one-half year). Any of the standard texts on this subject 
will furnish the necessary preparation. The exercises requiring solu- 
tions and demonstrations should not be omitted. 

Latin Grammar (one year). This will include the subjects of orthography, 
etymology and syntax. Proficiency is particularly desired in the 
following subjects: the analysis of the verb forms, the rules of 
syntax, and the principal parts of the irregular verbs. 

Caesar (one year). First four books or selections from the seven books 
equivalent to four ; or three books, with thirty pages of Cornelius 
Nepos, or two books with sixty pages of Cornelius Nepos. Special 
attention should be paid to the translation of passages of the text 
into correct and idiomatic English ; grammatical questions connected 
with the text; more especially on the subjunctive mood, indirect dis- 
course aid the sequence of tenses. The student is expected to be 
familiar with the life of Caesar and an account of his wars. 

Cicero (one year). Any six orations from the following list: Against Cati- 
line, Poet Archias, Ligarius. Marcellus, Manilian Laic (to count as 
two orations), the fourteenth Phillipic. The student should also be 
familiar with the life of Cicero. 

Virgil (one year). Six books of the Aeneid, or five of the Aencid and one of 
the Metamorphoses of Ovid, or the Eclogues. The student should be 
familiar with the life of Virgil and an account of his times and 
writings. A correct rythmical reading of the text is to be encouraged. 

Greek Grammar (one year) 

Xenophon's Anabasis (one year) — Four books 

German (two years) 

First year the pupil should acquire : 

(1) A correct pronunciation, training of the ear, eye and organs of 

speech. 

(2) A vocabulary of a thousand words of every day use; facility in 

combining these words into simple sentences. As a means to 
this, 100 to 150 pages of easy narrative prose and poetry 
should be read, from which questions and answers may be 
formed. To test the student's memory and knowledge of the 
word-order he should relate or write out the story anew in 
his own words. 



General Information. 51 

(3) From two to three hundred German idioms. 

(4) The essentials of German grammar, to be taught by means ol oral 

and written exercises based upon the reading lessons. 
s cond yea r : 

(1) Read one hundred, and fifty to two hundred pages of prose and 

poetry. 

(2) Practice in reading smoothly and with expression. 

(3) Carefully translate selected passages of the text into idiomatic 

English. To translate easy sentences which the student already 
understands is a waste of time. 

(4) Translate sentences from English into German, using words and 

idioms of the text read. 

(5) Study topically German grammar; chief rules of orthography, 

etymology and syntax ; illustrate these by words, phrases and 
sentences selected or composed by the student. 

French (two years). The principles of French grammar, including ac- 
quaintance with the verb, regular and irregular; an ability to trans- 
late easy English sentences into French and- simple French prose into 
English. 

Spanish (two years). First year, grammar and reader; second year, 
grammar reviewed; reading of some modern writer; composition' 
and conversation. 

Ancient History (one year). 

(a) This study should begin with from five to seven weeks upon the 
oriental peoples who have most influenced European development, 
noting the early civilizations in the valleys of the Nile and Eu- 
phrates, the spreading and meeting of these civilizations in the 
intermediate region, with notice of the more important states in 
that district, and the union of the East under Persia. This survey 
should aim to give an idea of the reach of recorded history, of the 
distinguishing features of the successive oriental nations, and of 
their more important influence upon later European development. 

(b) In the Greek and Roman age emphasis should be put upon the 
evolution of institutions, and considerable attention should be paid 
to the later Hellenistic period, after the rise of Macedon, and to the 
Roman Empire, with its bearing upon subsequent history. Some of 
the work should be illustrated by the use of sources, and maps should 
be used constantly. 

(c) The subject should be carried down to the establishment of 
Charlemagne's empire. This will bring together all the chief lines 
of influence which were afterwards to make our modern world, will 
show the meaning of the preceding eras as can not be done if the 
study stops at an early date, and will leave the subject at a period of 
comparative order and simplicity. 

Modern History (one year). From Charlemagne to the present. The topics to 
which special attention are called are the period of disorder after Charle- 
magne and the consequent rise of feudalism, the Holy Roman Empire 
and the papacy, the medieval church, the crusades, the free cities, the 
rise of national monarchies, the intellectual renaissance and the 
protestant reformation, the French revolution and the subsequent 
democratic movements in politics and industry. 
It is desirable to give at least half of the year to this last period from 
1789. 

English History (one-half year). The Saxon period should be passed over 
rapidly. In the remainder of the work, besides the narrative, consti- 
tutional points should receive attention, and easily accessible docu- 
ments, like Magna Charta, should receive careful study. 

Senior American History (one-half year). No attempt should be made to 
cover the whole field in this time. Either the colonial history or 
the period from 1783 to 1832 offers quite enough material. In any 
case, considerable use should be made of collections of documents, 
and sources. 

American Government (one-half year). This should be a study of our 
government, national, state and local, as it is organized and actually 
operated today. Students should be made familiar with the purpose 
and salient features of important instruments of government and 
other public acts like the Declaration of Independence, Articles of 
Confederation, the constitution of the United States, the constitution 
of Minnesota, and a local city or village charter. 



52 The University of Minnesota 

In no case, however, should the instruction consist wholly or largely 
of an analysis of documents. It should rather aim to impart in- 
formation essential to intelligent, active citizenship, such as the divi- 
sion of the government into departments, their organization and 
function ; the methods of nominating, electing, and appointing men to 
office ; of framing and amending constitutions, city charters and 
statutes ; of drawing grand and petit juries and the duty of the 
citizen to serve on them ; the distinction between common law, state 
law, and constitutional law, between equity, civil, and criminal cases. 
To make the government seem a real working organization to the 
student, he should be encouraged to observe public proceedings by 
attending school meetings, town meetings, sessions of the county 
commissioners, city council, state legislature, a trial in court, and 
party primaries and conventions. He should also be led to read 
about and observe public affairs for himself. To that end let him 
collect statistics and accounts of work done by particular offices and 
departments from published reports and by personal inquiry. 

Business Subjects : The following syllabi are offered by the University in 
order that the schools may be informed concerning the preparation 
expected in business subjects, in view of the fact that the graduates 
of business courses are now admitted to the University on the same 
footing as the graduates of other courses. 

It is not intended or expected that many schools, or perhaps any 
one school, will offer all the subjects indicated. Not to exceed 
forty per cent of the units for admission should in any case be taken 
from the list of technical business subjects named below. The 
other sixty per cent should embrace the required English and mathe- 
matics, together witli some work in history, science and the modern 
languages. The University is strongly of the opinion that no busi- 
ness course should be offered which does not include at least two 
years of some one modern language. 
Under the head of business subjects are included two distinct lines of 
work: first, courses dealing with the history, description, theory 
and law of business, including the history of commerce, commercial 
geography, elementary economics and business law ; second, courses 
dealing with the technique of business. The latter may be further 
subdivided into the mathematics of business, including business arith- 
metic, bookkeeping and business practice ; and the language of 
business, including stenography, typewriting and business corres- 
pondence. 

History of Commerce (one-half or one year). The history of commerce 
forms the natural introduction to the study of present economic 
conditions. It would be well to give special attention to the economic 
history of England and the United States. The work should be based 
on a text book, supplemented by carefully directed map work and 
assigned readings. This should be preceded by a year course of 
medieval and modern European history. 

Commercial Geography (one-half or one year). As the history of commerce 
is concerned with the past, so commercial geography describes and 
seeks to explain the commerce of today. The work should cover 
the ways in which commerce depends on nature and on man, the 
development of means of transportation and communication, and a 
detailed study of the several commercial nations of the world with 
reference to resources, industries, transportation facilities and com- 
merce. It should be based on a text book supplemented by map work 
and assigned readings. 

Elementary Economics (one-half year). In the study of economics it is 
desirable to avoid two extremes, abstract theory on the one hand, 
and controversial questions such as the tariff, trusts, and trade unions 
on the other hand. Emphasis should be placed on historical and 
descriptive matter, especially relating to the economic development 
of England and the United States. Some good elementary text book 
should be mastered and a reasonable amount of collateral reading 
required. 

Business Law (one-half year). The object of this study is not to make 
"every man his own lawyer" but rather to enable him to keep out of 
legal complications. Text book supplemented by study of a few 



General Information. 53 

typical cases, and practice in drawing up ordinary legal papers such 
as bills, notes, checks, etc. 

Business Arithmetic (one-half year). The object is first of all, absolute 
accuracy and secondly speed in ordinary business computations. 
The topics to be emphasized are, fundamental operations, common 
fractions having as denominator 2, 3, 4, 6 and 8, a few common 
weights and measures, percentage and its applications, and useful 
short methods, especially the use of interest and other calculation 
tables. The work should be based on a text book, supplemented by 
numerous live exercises from current sources. 

Elementary Bookkeeping (one year). A text book should be employed 
with exercises so arranged that no two pupils will do exactly the 
same work, and no credit should be allowed unless the work is done 
neatly, accurately and at a satisfactory rate of speed. It is sug- 
gested that double periods be provided, and all work be done in class 
under the eye of the instructor. The set used should include the 
journal, cash book, sales book, ledger, check book, bank pass book 
and trial balance book. * 

Advanced Bookkeeping and Business Practice (one year). Thorough drill 
on standard business forms, such as bills, receipts, checks, notes, etc., 
also on the use and meaning of business symbols and abbreviations. 
The student should become acquainted with the bill book and invoice 
book, and loose leaf and voucher systems of bookkeeping. Each 
student should carry on a business of his own, first as an individual, 
then as a partnership, and finally as a corporation. Credit on this 
course should mean that the student lacks only age and actual 
business experience to become a competent bookkeeper. 

Stenography and Typewriting (two years). This work is expected to occupy 
not less than two periods daily for two years. No credit should be 
given for either shorthand or typewriting if taken alone. Nothing 
but the touch method should be used in typewriting. The essentials 
are first, accuracy and speed in taking dictation and transcribing 
notes ; secondly, correct spelling, capitalization, punctuation and 
paragraphing. The minimum speed at the end of the first year 
should be 75 words per minute in dictation and 25 words per minute 
on the machine; and at the end of the second year, 100 words per 
minute in dictation and 35 words per minute in transcribing notes. 
Thorough training should also be given in care of the machine, in 
modern methods of manifolding and in filing papers. 

Spelling and Business Correspondence (one-half year). Preliminary review 
of five hundred common technical business words. Thorough training 
on business correspondence including (1) the proper form for business 
letters, (2) the proper choice of words and construction of sentences 
with reference to clearness and brevity, (3) capitalization, punctua- 
tion and paragraphing, (4) writing and answering telegrams and 
advertisements. The work should be based on a text book supple- 
mented by letters relating to most prominent industries of the locality. 

Physics (one year). It is suggested that the year's work be confined to four 
of the seven subjects mentioned below. 
(1) Mechanics of solids, (2) liquids and gases, (3) sound, (4) heat, 
(5) light, (6) and (7) electricity and magnetism (to count as two 
subjects, but not to be divided). 

Chemistry (one year). The full year's work should include a study of both 
the non-metals and metals with laboratory experiments illustrating 
the common chemical laws and the commoner chemical reactions'. 

Botany (one or one-half year). Schools which give one-half year of botany 
should devote particular attention to plant relations, making the 
course largely ecologic in bearing. When a whole year is given to 
the subject, additional work upon plant structures should be offered, 
and together with fundamental conceptions of ecology, a general 
idea of morphology and taxonomy should be the aim of' the course. 

Zoology (one or one-half year). The course of zoology, whether a half year 
or a year course, should be a natural history rather than a modern 
morphological course. Collecting and classifying (as a means) should 
be encouraged as much as possible. Animals should be studied as 
living units, in their relation to one another and their environment 



54 The University of Minnesota 

The general and special structural feature in relation to the habits, 
the food and manner of obtaining it, the enemies and means of pro- 
tection against them, hibernation, migration, the differences in habits, 
form and structure between the old or mature animal and the young, 
the relation of parents to their offspring, etc. — in short, all about the 
life of the animal under consideration should be made out by direct 
observation of the animal in its natural home and in confinement. 

The course, on the whole, should aim to foster and develop a love for 
nature, train the power of observation toward accuracy and give a 
healthful stimulation to the imagination. The pupil should be 
guarded against the habit of confounding the facts of observation 
with his interpretation and his judgments. 

The animals for direct observation should be selected from as many 
branches of the animal kingdom as possible, and the changes during 
the year in the character of the fauna of the locality in general as 
well as of some particular region should be noted. In some localities 
the work will of necessity be largely restricted to land and ait- 
animals, but no locality in Minnesota is so poor in animal life that 
very profitable work cannot be laid out along the line indicated above. 

It will be noticed that such a course of necessity includes so-called 
laboratory work. The amount and extent of the laboratory work 
will depend upon conditions, but even under the best conditions it is 
hardly advisable to go into detailed dissections and embryology. Con- 
tinued, repeated, and close observation, aided now and then, by a. 
simple hand lens or a compound microscope, will reveal an abundance 
of material and opportunity for disciplining the mind. 
Astronomy (one-half year). An elementary course in general astronomy as 

presented in any good modern text-book. 
Geology (one-half year). These subdivisions should receive special attention: 
physiographic geology, which treats of the building of the land 
and the evolution of its existing contours ; geo-dynamics, the study 
of the forces, atmosphere, water, terrestrial heat, plants and animals 
modifying the earth ; and a brief survey of historical geology. 
Physiography (one-half year). The following topics should be emphasized: 
meteorology, the leading facts relating to the atmosphere and its 
phenomena, including some acquaintance with the work of the United 
States weather bureau ; land sculpture, as it treats of the origin, 
development and decadence of land forms, and the influence of these 
processes on the physical environment of man. 
Manual Subjects : In view of the multiplication of manual training courses 
in the high schools, it seems well to define what the University 
expects in the line of manual training and drawing work. It is not 
implied that many schools, or perhaps any one school, should offer 
all of the subjects indicated. Not to exceed twenty-five per cent of 
the units for admission to the University should in any case be 
taken from the list given below. The major part of the course 
should consist of the required English, and of mathematics, history, 
science and foreign languages. Students taking a manual training 
course should be held to a full course in mathematics, and should be 
required to complete not less than two years of one foreign language. 

Owing to the fact that drawing and shop work do not require outside 
preparation, it is not fair that they should be credited by the schools 
on the same basis as the academic subjects. It is therefore suggested 
that half credits be allowed ; that is to say, one full credit for two 
years of work one period daily, or for one year of work two periods 
daily, in each subject. 

Freehand drawing (two credits) 

Mechanical drawing (two credits) 

Joinery (one-half credit) 

Wood turning and cabinet making (one-half credit) 

Pattern making and forge shop (one-half credit) 

Machine shop, including chipping 

Filing and work on the iron lathe (one-half credit) 

Drill press and iron planer 

Clay modelling (one-half credit) 

Wood carving (one-half credit) 

Domestic art, including carefully graded exercises in sewing 
(one credit) 

Domestic science, including practical cookery, and household econ- 
omy (one credit)

GRADUATION AND DEGREES 
Graduation 

The candidate for a degree must complete the requirements for gradu- 
ation in his course. Any person may undergo, at suitable times, examina- 
tion in any subject, and if such person pass in all the studies and exercises 
of the course, he is entitled to the appropriate degree ; provided, however, 
that at least one full year (the one immediately preceding the granting of 
the degree) must be spent at the University, before such degree shall be 
granted, and provided that examination, in every case, be held before a 
committee of the faculty appointed for that purpose. 

For detailed information concerning requirements see the bulletins of 
the separate colleges and schools.

EXPENSES 

The expense of living at the University varies greatly according to 
individual habits and tastes. In general the scale of expense is below 
rather than above that of similar institutions in the middle west and is 



60 The University of Minnesota, 

considerably lower than that of most institutions situated in the eastern 
states. 

Several years ago a number of young men and women, at the request 
of University officials, kept careful account of their expenses for the Uni- 
versity year. The result was that the expenses of the young men ranged 
from two hundred and seventeen to three hundred and ninety-seven dollars 
for the University year. The same students earned sums varying from 
two hundred and thirty-seven to two hundred and seventy-two dollars. 
The young women reported expenses varying from one hundred and fifty 
to three hundred and fifty-five dollars. These figures do not include fees, 
and, as the cost of living has increased decidedly, probably twenty-five per 
cent should be added to these figures to make them safe. 

The students upon whose statements these figures are based were rep- 
resentative students ; they were not extravagant nor did they deny them- 
selves unduly to get along. While students can live within the figures 
given above, they would not, owing to the increased cost of living, be able 
to live as comfortably nor to have as many privileges as these students 
had. 

Meals can be had at prices ranging from two dollars and a quarter 
per week to as high as the student can afford to pay. In private families 
board ranges from three to five dollars. 

Furnished rooms vary in price from eight to twenty dollars per month. 
Two students rooming together would of course reduce this expense. It 
is sometimes possible for a student, rooming alone, to secure a good room 
at an expense but little higher than when two room together; but such 
chances are the exception and not the rule. New students will find that 
they will be more likely to secure comfortable rooms and suitable board 
if they will consult the general secretary of either the Young Men's or 
Young Women's Christian Association immediately upon arrival at the 
University, or if they will correspond with these officers before coming to 
the University. 

The student who learns some trade before coming to the University 
has a great advantage over the student who has to earn his money by 
ordinary manual labor. Students have earned their whole expenses while 
attending the University, and have made good records at the same time. 
Other students have done so much work that they have not been able 
to keep up their studies, and have thus missed the one thing for which 
they were attending the University. 

If it is possible for the student to have a part of his expenses paid, 
he should not attempt to earn his way entirely by his own exertions. It 
is a comparatively easy thing for a young man to earn half his living 
while attending the University and yet do good work in his classes. 
Students who want work seldom fail to find it. In coming to the Univer- 



General Information. 61 

sity, the student should bring enough money with him so that he can live 
comfortably for a few weeks until he can find something to do. 

Students who desire advice and assistance in securing a position to 
help pay their expenses should confer with the Secretary of the Y. M. C. A. 
at the University. 

A pamphlet has been published containing five papers (one by a young 
woman) relating actual experiences of students who have made their way 
through the University. Students who contemplate making their own way 
through college will find here stated some very interesting and encourag- 
ing facts. A copy will be sent free to any address upon application.
